Point to Ponder
Hello from the Holiday
Christmas is a special time of year filled with wonderment and
excitement for young and old
- Christmas is also a
hectic time with frantic gift shopping, travel, and trying to fit
in all the family and friends.
- Remember the reason for
the season and stop long enough to take a breath once in awhile
and hug those you love.
We wanted to send a quick
note to our friends, family, colleagues and clients we've been able
to connect with over this past year.Thanks to each of you for the
gift you've been in our lives and our business
2009 has been a
year mixed with success, challenges, meeting new friends, saying
goodbye to some clients and welcoming new ones.
Irene and I have done a
fair amount of traveling since this time last year. We met in Paris
when I was returning from speaking in Mumbai, last January. We had
our 'official' honeymoon in Mexico in March and celebrated my 60th
in Cuba last April (that is actually white sand in the background of

creating an outside garden at our place in Egremont.
We saw Irene expand her
Vitrak Creative web design business and added new products and
services to my Ideas At Work!. We celebrated our 2nd honeymoon in
Vegas in October the day after our 1st anniversary. In two weeks
we'll be heading south for January to visit our daughter, Amanda,
who is teaching in Australia. Whew! Along the way we shared
laughs, love and even a tear or two.
In spite of a challenge
or two along the way and the odd business disappointment, this has
been a wonderful year together. And we have been able to share it in
part with each of you. That is a blessing in
We wanted to send
our warmest Christmas greetings to you, your families and co-workers
and best wishes for a prosperous 2010 for each of
I sent this out

double helping of best wishes.
